Picture This!



Todays challenge on 365 Cards (#132) is titled Picture This! Use the above photo to inspire your project. I really just went with the actual image. Light choc creme frosting with dark choc swirl and a yellow center. My card used bamboo c/s base, cocoa matte, embossed sunflower center. The embossed swirls reminded me of the swirls on the cake and the impression of the smoke from the flames of the candles. Stamped the stars, just like the stars on the cake, candles, and the silver ribbon tying the candles together is like the silver ribbon around the cake. Cake- I am assuming it is a birthday cake..... yummmmy cake, think I am going to have to make some cake for dessert tonight!

Happy start to your weekend, thanks for stopping by! I will let you know how the cake was later.....can't think anymore, my mind is centered on moist white cake......


supplies: all CTMH products, except for the silver ribbon and candles.

This is great! I never would have thought of putting actual candles on there! I think this is my favorite interpretation so far!
